FM Real Estate Team awarded at Regional Level

Fargo, ND March, 2021 — The FM Real Estate Team of Keller Williams Inspire Realty was recently awarded a Triple Platinum Award and a spot in the Top 5 Groups in the North Central Region.

The FM Real Estate Team was started in 2006 by Jeff Shipley. It has since grown to be in the top 2% of Real Estate Teams in the Keller Williams Worldwide Family and currently closes on 300-400 transactions per year in the FM area. Shipley has built the team directly from the models laid out by Gary Keller and Keller Williams to build a fully leveraged 7th level real estate team. The team is currently led by Lynn Motteberg and has an agent count of 25+, growing rapidly. Motteberg has been the local YWCA’s Woman of the Year, Store Manager of the Year for Bath and Body Works twice, among multiple other leadership accomplishments.

“The team is a great place to build a business with,” says Motteberg. “It provides leverage to our agents so they can focus on what they are best at – serving their clients, doing buyer and listing consultations, negotiating and closing deals. We have experts who handle the files, marketing and back end systems of each transaction which is a huge time leverage for our agents. It’s simply another option for agents who want additional leverage than that of a traditional independent real estate agent. And it’s great to know there are multiple ways to run a successful business in real estate.”

In 2015 and again in 2017, Training Magazine named Keller Williams the No. 1 training organization across all industries in the world. “The company’s philosophy on growth and development has direct benefits on our local teams. In 2020, our two KW franchises across both ND and MN have offered over 1,500 education opportunities to our agents. It is truly a win-win. Our agents grow their businesses, the company is expanding exponentially, and we provide a higher level of professionalism and service to the clients and communities we serve. At KW, we are constantly adding value to our agents so that they can build a business they are proud to own, no matter what level of production they are at,” adds Shipley.

The FM Real Estate Team and Keller Williams Inspire Realty are both part of the JSE Inc. Family of Companies, supporting multiple locations throughout ND, MN and WI, the management and leadership arm of over a dozen real estate related companies that closed more than $1 Billion in real estate transactions in 2020 alone.
